We had this NOVA . It was an '86 lift back. Best car we owned in 40+ years . Picked it up for $1,000 with nearly 100,000 miles . It was the 1.6 ltr. with a 3 speed auto . It passed on close to 270,000 miles . Very hard driving . Lots of stop and go . It had the ECO button for A/C . Was told by transmission specialist it had a MAZDA transmission . Changed oil every 3>4,000 miles and tranny fluid 25>30,000 miles .

^^^ The 1985-88 Chevy Nova was a rebadged Toyota Sprinter that shared Corolla's AE82 platform, 1.6L engine, and 5-speed manual or 3-speed or 4-speed automatic transmission.

I've owned a lot of cars over the years. My 2007 Yaris and 2014 Yaris are among my favourites, but I think the 2007 is a better car.

My 2017 Buick Encore (Opel/Vauxhall Mokka) is probably my favourite car so far. Build quality, materials, fit, finish, and paint are outstanding. It performs extremely well, is tomb quiet, and is by far the most comfortable car I've ever driven. It's a small hatchback, so is every bit as practical as the Yaris. I have a 2-year lease, so I'm not concerned about long term reliability, although it has excellent reliability ratings since it's introduction in 2013 and the Opel/Vauxhall Mokka gets great long-term reliability reviews in Europe. My lease is up in about 5 months, and I plan to get another Encore.

Great example.

I bought a Chevy Sonic for my Wife a few years ago. Same platform as your Encore, and Chevy Trax.
In fact, that platform was developed with Fiat and is also the basis of a number of Fiat models as well, including some N. American Chrysler/Jeep vehicles.

It is a very capable platform

I am considering an Encore as well. I like the recent facelift and the higher ride height would be nice. I'm glad to hear you think it is a quality vehicle.

Yes, sadly the trusty 1NZ-FE Yaris, or a Toyota-built Yaris next-gen TNGA successor, has been axed in the U.S. market. Toyota did recently announce, however, that they are reintroducing the Yaris hatchback to the U.S. in 2020 - but it will be a rebadged Mazda2 hatchback made in Mexico. Surprise, surprise, eh? I think it is scheduled to debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show in April - with same homely iA fishface no doubt.
